Introductory Clinical MRI: Principles, Protocols, and Problem Solving
Sunday, 2 April 2000, 08:00 - 17:35

Last updated 24 June 2008

Neuroimaging Session:  All Day
Body Imaging Session:  Morning
Musculoskeletal Imaging Session:  Afternoon

Overall Audience Description

Clinicians, scientists, and engineers who are relatively new to MRI and those practitioners who, while they have had some exposure to the field, would like a refresher;
Physicians with a general radiology background and some degree of subspecialty education in MRI, although fellowship training would not be necessary;
Those with specific interests in clinical neurological applications, clinical musculoskeletal MRI applications, and clinical body MRI;
A strong MR physics or technical background is not required, although basic knowledge of common clinical applications will be assumed.

Sunday, 2 April - All day
Neuroimaging Session
Mark A. van Buchem and Vincent Dousset,

Educational Objectives:

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to

Describe imaging strategies to analyze epilepsy, stroke, infection and inflammation of the brain and spine, neoplastic disease in the head and neck, hearing loss, and pituitary pathology;
Apply strategies for prenatal and neonatal brain imaging;
Explain why and how these strategies are to be performed.
